This loose ink painting contains intricacies only possible with such an unruly, unstable medium as painting with black sumi ink. As one moves in closely to this life size work of art, the hints of bright shells and dark contrasting lines portray all kinds of briny goodness.
This specific oyster was inspired by an east coast, local Charleston, SC, oyster.
